Jeremy Corbyn's High Five Was The Cringiest Moment Of 2017

The Labour leader came a cropper when attempting to celebrate with Labour MP Emily Thornberry.
With the General Election and the ongoing Brexit negotiations,, it's fair to say that 2017 has been a pretty hectic year for UK politics.
Whatever side of the fence you sit on, we can all probably agree that one of the stand out moments of the election results came when a jubilant Jeremy Corbyn attempted to high-five Emily Thornberry at the Islington North count and found himself slapping her on the breast instead.
Watch a clip of the cringeworthy moment here:
And it wasn't lost on Twitter, who decided to comment on his unfortunate misplaced hand.

While it's fair to say Corbyn made a bit of a tit of himself, but it makes for some pretty funny viewing.
So what have we learned from this? No politician, not even Jeremy Corbyn should ever attempt to get down with the kids. Ever.
We think he'll go back to giving stiff handshakes and pats on the back from now on.
